Persolvent and CBORD Partner to Offer New Payment Technology for Campus-Based Organizations
Partnership offers modern commerce experience for higher education and healthcare campuses
ST. PAUL, Minn. - Persolvent, an award-winning payment technology company, recently announced a partnership with CBORD, the leader in higher education and healthcare campus technology solutions. The partnership was first revealed to customers during CBORD’s annual users group conference in October.
This relationship brings new payment solutions to customers using CBORD’s GET commerce platform — approximately 340 higher education and healthcare institutions today. GET enables students, faculty, and patrons to make deposits, check balance history, see locations where they can use their card, and order online via an iOS and Android app.
GET institutions will continue accepting major card brands through the platform — Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express — as accepted by their bank’s processor. With the new solution offered through this partnership, they will now be able to accept Apple Pay on iOS devices.
“Together, we’ve built an outstanding product and service for our customers. We’re building technology solutions that meet the financial demands of our consumers and the new ways they want to pay. And we’re doing that while ensuring their data is completely secure,” said Vince Arnoldi, president of Persolvent.
All features meet Payment Card Industry (PCI) Level 1 standards, which are the most stringent and rigorous security standards in the industry. This ensures that cardholders’ private information remains private.
Persolvent and CBORD have already completed three initial integrations: The University of Vermont, University of San Francisco and Rhode Island College. The two businesses will migrate all customers from their existing GET gateway provider to Persolvent’s gateway by the end of 2020. GET customers can also move to the full Persolvent option for an all-in-one payment processing solution with merchant hosting.
CBORD is a pioneer in campus card technology and integrated security solutions, and Persolvent is a leader in financial technology. This new partnership helps strengthen each company’s position in the market, and it builds on a relationship that’s more than a decade old. Since 2008, Persolvent has partnered with Horizon Software, CBORD’s sister company, to offer the MyPaymentsPlus commerce platform to K-12 parents.
“We’re excited to leverage the existing partnership that has been so successful in our K-12 market,” said Jim Hoefflin, president of CBORD and Horizon Software. “Persolvent’s turnkey technology will allow us to bring the same trusted payment processing capabilities and a modern commerce experience to our customers in adjacent markets.”
